I would like to invite you to consider submitting a proposal for the 2018 SOURCES Annual Conference (

Accessing teaching tools and primary sources from
Identifying key considerations for selecting primary sources for instructional use (for example, student needs and interests, teaching goals, etc.);
Accessing primary sources and teaching resources from

Analyzing primary sources in different formats;
Analyzing a set of related primary sources in order to identify multiple perspectives;
Demonstrating how primary sources can support at least one teaching strategy (for example, literacy, inquiry-based learning, historical thinking, etc.); and

For more information about the SOURCES Conference and to submit a proposal, visit the conference web site (
